Bosque del Cabo Rainforest Lodge

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica


At the centre of the property, by the main lodge and restaurant, are 8 Deluxe and 2 Classic Cabinas, as well as the Vista Mar Suite and the Aracari Suite which are on the ground and first floor of a cabina respectively. The cabinas are simple constructions with thatched roofs, and doors that can be folded back to reveal the ocean view. They open onto a balcony with rocking or lounge chairs and hammocks. There are thoughtful touches, like the comfortable chairs and reading lights above the bed. Bathrooms are in 2 parts, with a basin and toilet inside, and an ample shower area outside.

The 2 Garden Cabinas and Casa Teca are in a separate part of the property, reached via a 300ft long suspension bridge (75ft above a creek) and spaced out generously, surrounded by rainforest in beautiful gardens. They are finished to a much higher standard and equipped with everything you need for self-catering. The Garden Cabinas each have a bedroom that is open on 3 sides to jungle and garden views; roll-down canvases protect the cabinas in inclimate weather. Casa Teca is an open, ranch style 2-bedroom house. You get great wildlife sightings here but are a longer walk from the main lodge.

In addition, you can live in the rainforest in 1 of 3 casas about a mile away from the main. Casa Miramar (sleeps up to 8 in 3 bedrooms) is spread over 3 small houses linked by heliconia-lined pathways and has an observation deck, a solar power system, and a small private pool, as well as wonderful panoramic ocean and sunset views. Whereas Casa Blanca, is a 2 bedroom home decorated in a classic tropical style with a large wraparound porch with Pacific views and a sundeck. While the newest house, Casa Coco is completely private, with its own trail to the beach and a private pool and large deck area. All have their own living room, dining area and fully equipped kitchen.

Ask reception for a torch to find your way around at nights as the paths are not lit.

Save to favouritesPrintMailBosque del Cabo Rainforest LodgeOwner Phil Spier arrived from Florida at this spot on the beautiful Osa Peninsula, attracted by the amazing rainforest. His dream was to establish a sustainable organic black pepper farm and rehabilitate the land, but realised such a small scale business needed to diversify so built 3 cabinas. He could little imagine that 20 years later he’d have a successful business attracting guests wanting to chill out amongst the wildlife and enjoy a range of forest-centric [i!!activities]. But here, in beautiful tropical gardens elevated above the Pacific, you can choose between [r:CO020:cabins], offering simple comforts, or [i!! villas], fully equipped for self-catering. Sprawl out on a hammock or rock in the wicker chairs. There are plenty of trails through the lodge’s own reserve to explore the primary and secondary rainforest or reach the beach - and the resident biologist Philip Davison gives a fascinating tour: ‘a 4-hour crash course in tropical ecology’! Don’t expect luxury. Do expect a fantastic laid-back adventure.
